Ssurrounded by shore pine, waxmyrtle, huckleberry and salal, Driftwood is a designated off-road vehicle riding campground that offers direct sand access to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The layout of the campground is a large parking lot with designated camping sites. Most sites come with a picnic table and campfire pit, but RV pull-through sites 49-58 do not have these amenities. The campground has flush toilets, drinking water and hot showers.
Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction here and the Driftwood II OHV Trail is a great place to start. For added variety, beach goers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and watching sea birds at the nearby beach. If in season, whales may be spotted in the ocean as well.
During snowy plover nesting season (March 15 - September 15), hiking access to the beach is only from the Siltcoos Beach Day Use parking lot.
The original Driftwood I Campground was located south of the Siltcoos Beach Road near the river in an area now covered with conifers and other native vegetation. This campground was decommissioned in the mid-late 1980s. The site is also within the boundaries of the seasonally restricted snowy plover nesting area.
